Guadeloupe (pron.: /ɡwɑːdəˈluːp/Point à Pitre ; is a Caribbean island with a land area of 1,628 square kilometres (629 sq. mi) and a population of 400,000. It is an overseas region of France and consists of the island of Guadeloupe, the smaller islands of Marie-Galante, La Désirade and the Îles des Saintes.
The island of Guadeloupe comprises two main islands: Grande-Terre Island and Basse-Terre (separated from Basse-Terre by a narrow sea channel called the Salt River). Eastern Grande-Terre features rolling hills and flat plains while the Western Basse-Terre has a rough volcanic relief and hosts La Grande Soufrière, an active stratovolcano. It is the highest mountain peak in the Lesser Antilles and rises 1,467 m high. The volcano's 1976 eruption led to an evacuation but no loss of life. from Wikepedia
